Thanks for this.

However, all we're actually doing is chasing around in circles every
time someone twitches one of these web pages. There must be a better way.

I can't believe that there isn't a proper _web service_ available
somewhere which can provide stock prices and/or fund prices. It is the
canonical example which is always supplied when starting work on web
services. This would avoid the perpetual chasing of every minor adjustment.

I have looked for one myself, but never found any documented web service
available. But there must be one out there? It doesn't have to be an
up-to-the-minute feed; one of the 20-minute delayed feeds would be fine,
or even just a feed which gives daily closing prices.

Then, presumably, there could be a separate module within Finance::Quote
which would access this web service directly, instead of screen-scraping
off a web page.

Is this really too much to ask?
